. i think the right way to think about it is to think of almost be to romney administration, sort of november 7 them to let's say set timber 30th, 2013, which is deal with the immediate issues that got to do with. and that's going to be very much mike levin, chief of white house staff, paul ryan as vice president who knows a heck of a lot about this and whoever is the treasury secretary meeting twice a day i would guess at the white house at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with senior white house staff and maybe the hhs secretary needs to be in as many. and everyone else is getting their asses and sectors confront a getting to know the authorizing committees on the. than the rest of the romney administration were hoping would move to more of a modernizing government and a whole bunch of other things that could be done in a bunch of departments which we need to be approved. but i do think at least my sense is the romney people and i think you're right about this, very focused on the first six, nine months. if you want to do that you do need a extremist on white house and omb control. if i were ad

romney and groups on the right, it is governor romney site come if he will come it has a heavier weight. it is relatively close, but it is an aggregate on that side. that is an important part of campaign finance reform. this used to be the party committee, the republican national committee eusebio to do this and it is important to note that as well finances the reform has come and the accountable are the candidates themselves. they have to go out, stands behind the ads in fact authorize this. they are ultimately the people voted on. the next player i would be the party committees because they are controlled by the elected officials or party folks. they are held to account. the closes thing other than two candidates. this well-intentioned campaign finance reform to put it out. if you see the dgi and rga on the committee side, they figure that out right away and you have done this and this is the result of a lot of people well-intentioned thinking that money has no place in politics. they ended up putting money outside. so they are outside of the candidates. the sheer spending by the cand

after this election if romney loses. he wasn't far right enough. i wonder if the morning after the morning after. people would say we have gone too far to the right and we need a different republican party which i think the country desperately needs because it needs to be center-left and it's the only way we agree to get big compromises on these issues. >> can i add the role of history suggests the clinton and ronald reagan the second term as the productive term, the big achievement so it's hard to know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if that happens, but the question is how they decide to spend the next four years and i think it's very hard to tell but there is some hope in looking back at both clinton and reagan. >> he was also a far right to limit took running the republican party at the time whoever they equivalent was a time and. but in fact he wasn't. life was a little more complicated by the fearful analogy. >> he raised taxes -- >> i think that's why the parties in opposition tend to be less responsible than parties of power. i think

. katherine, go ahead, you're on the air. >> caller: the thing that governor romney did well or right when he was governor. i was on the health care plan for two months when my husband was between two different jobs, and i found that the massachusetts health care law better than the one i'm on now which is blue cross blue shield. >> host: thanks for the call. let's hear from john in georgia on the republicans' line. good morning, john. >> caller: good morning. as i understand it in, in 2006, massachusetts required everybody had insurance, and we didn't do anything to address costs. now, six years later, we are trying to address costs, and we're going something similar to what the affordable care act's doing where we penalize hospitals. both laws are flawed in my view. i want your feedback because we all know that 80% of our medical issues are tied to personal behavior to if i'm a smoker, if i drink, my recovery rates or readmission rates are higher for somebody whoa gets up and drinks a green tea and eats oatmeal. there's a difference. hospitals and providers, if i was a provider, and i knew

romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and help do they own? when you say government interference, i understand you were talking about the federal government, but i heard mitt romney say that states' rights, is it the rights of the state's coming into the cities to overthrow the local municipalities? if that's a big government, small government, i don't know, is it controlled government? i think they have a right to control their own destiny in their own city. so the public is on the ballot in november, and i am turning everybody in michigan to vote down. we don't need dictatorship. it is a dictated view. >> host: thanks so much on the mall of the government in relation to the city and its relationship with federal government. and detroit. swb writes the government should do its job and maintain the general welfare. from debate news the numbers are in on how many people watched on television. more than 600 million watched the debate in this election cycle nearly 15 million were going to watch t

and the republican plan on medicare. >> before you jump and glen let me push back a little here. >> go right ahead. [laughter] >> a day or two before governor romney made his decision on running mates i was talking with stan greenberg, another democratic pollster and he runs a democracy corps with james carville and they have been desperately trying to use the ryan plan you know, to basically beat republican members of congress about the head with the ryan plan and with minimal success because of what you said. nobody knew who paul ryan was and as we were getting off the phone, i think i said look, i will give you this. i don't think romney, governor romney, is going to pick paul ryan but if he does, okay we will have another conversation because it strikes me that democrats have not effectively made medicare and the ryan plan -- i have seen all the polling that shows how it moves people in polls. i haven't seen them really inflict a lot of bodily damage on republicans on the ryan plan, on medicare so far. am i missing something? has it had an effect, or not? >> the flip answer would be we will fi
